Dinner

One Pot Creamy Sausage and Shells

So our son Ian is moving off campus this fall and asked us to show him some recipes that he can create on his own. So, we found a new recipe that hit all his food criteria. Pasta, cheese and sausage!

This is a one pot recipe that is from Betty Crocker and was super easy to make. All ingredients are pretty much in the pantry or freezer. (We always have sausage in our freezer) This comes together in about 40 minutes. And is easy cleanup!

Made by our son!
